Would you rather be mega famous and not make very good music, like JB, or would you rather have moderate fame but make widely respected and influential music, like Jeff Magnum?

The reason I use those two guys as examples are these two videos, which highlight the huge differences between JB's fame and Jeff's fame. So there's no need to come in here and say you don't like NMH.

I'd take the mega fame, by the way.

Magnum is one of the greatest television series ever, and the greatest band ever. Jeff whatchamacallhim is an insult to the name.

I think I would rather make the music Justin Bieber makes than be that whiney dude, regardless of fame.

I wouldn't want everyone in the world to instantly recognize me on the street. I'd also want REAL influence. A worthy legacy to leave that would actually inspire others in the future. Not just to be the pop star of the xx's decade.

It's no contest. Moderate fame is better.


Never heard of this Mangum guy, by the way. I'm just talking in general terms here.
Balls.

Trolls lose.

I would rather be rich and famous off bad music, then 360 and make some good music, sorta like every band ever only opposite.

Definitely Beiber. His girlfriend is Selena Gomez.

Mega fame then once I'm rich and famous I hire a full time music teacher and become more famous for having songs that everyone can like since it started out with the pre-pubescent girl music then evolved into a respectible musician
#19
I'd make music that I felt like making, and not worry about the money.
I'd never want making and selling music to be my full time job.
I'd either release my music for free on my own, or get with a DIY label.

Soooo... I guess Mangum?

I'd rather have moderate fame and make good music. You used a terrible example though.

Mangum sounds like a rauchy sexual slang for butthole, a la balloon knot.

I would rather be influential. If you've got moderate income and people who don't want to send death threats to my home every day, then why not live without the intense stardom?

If I could, I'd imitate the repetitive noises that fill Explosions in the Sky's records, but thankfully, man is unable to transmit such nonsense through the written word.
